Our Pros of Dental Crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL Answer FAQs about Crowns

Many people wonder about the necessity and uses of dental crowns, especially when they have to make a difference between them and traditional cavity fillings. Some even complain that their dentists try to “sell” them dental crowns and need to understand more about the procedure. Today, our pros in dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL are here to explain to you some things and answer some frequently asked questions related to this particular treatment.

If I do not have a broken tooth, why do I need a dental crown?

When you have a broken tooth that needs saving, a dental crown becomes an obvious solution of “teeth saving.” However, in practice, patients go through plenty of instances when the need for a dental crown is less evident. Our pros in dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL list the situations where dental crowns are the safest and healthiest solution even if you do not have a damaged tooth:

  • To repair and restore a tooth that had a massive cavity filling;
  • To strengthen and fix a tooth that had a large and old fill;
  • To create an anchor for a bridge;
  • To safeguard a tooth that suffered a root canal procedure.

If you already received some fillings for some teeth cavities, the dental crown may seem a questionable method for the doctor to take more money from you. However, you should know that large cavities require caps so you can preserve the tooth.

The larger the filling, the less tooth material you have, and the higher the risk you face to have that filling fall out. It is irresponsible (and yes, unfair) for a dentist to fill a large cavity knowing the patient will soon return to the office with even a more significant problem (fallen filling or cracked tooth).

Does a dental crown require a root canal?

Most dental crown treatments do not require a root canal. If the tooth does not present infections or inflammation, you will not receive a root canal.

Nevertheless, a root canal always requires a dental crown. As your dentist drills and grinds your tooth to reach the infected pulp inside the tooth’s root, you will need a dental crown so that tooth continues to function.

Does a dental crown look and feel like a real tooth?

Yes. An expert in dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL will shape and color the dental cap to look and work exactly like your real teeth.

Should I pay particular attention to my crowned teeth?

Just because you have one or more crowned teeth, it does not mean you should neglect them. Dental crowns are not eternal and they the same protection and hygiene as your other teeth. Caps can break or chip if you do not take good care of them. Brush your teeth (crowned or not) as your doctor ordered and visit the dental office for checkups at least twice a year.

Will I afford dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL?

Many patients avoid such procedure believing their insurance will not cover the treatment or they do not have enough coverage for such interventions. Never jeopardize your health and quality of life only because you think you cannot afford proper medical treatments. Come in our office and have a lengthy discussion with our experts in dental crowns in Fort Lauderdale FL. We can provide you with a proper financial solution to solve your dental problems and ease your mind when it comes to financial burdens.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
